HMB Coastside Election Results NOT FINAL YET- Early Counts Represent Only 40% of Votes!!

ARTICLE. Half Moon Bay, CA – The City of Half Moon Bay is advising the community that the results of yesterday’s election are not yet final, and in fact as of today are based on only 40% of the votes cast. This percentage does not include votes mailed in on election day, which may not be received until Friday.

The final vote tally will be provided by the San Mateo County elections office, and may take several days to complete. As of today, that office’s election results website notes, “This information is a raw count estimate (not tallied) that is subject to change and updated daily.” The County’s next announcement of the ongoing vote count is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, November 8, 2018, at 4:30 pm.

Bedtime Stories ~ A Sick Day for Amos McGee

PODCAST. A Sick Day for Amos McGee is a labour of love. It oozes painstaking effort, remarkable talent and a contagious enjoyment of life. It’s the kind of thing that makes you feel grateful that there are still people out there prepared to undertake this kind of carefully slow-cooked project. Thank you!

In A Sick Day for Amos McGee, Erin Stead’s exquisitely pencil-drawn faces and use of colour bring zookeeper Amos, his animal friends and their story to life. It is a charming story about companionship and learning kindness through imitation, with several visual subplots involving the sock-wearing penguin and a red balloon, and a sort of parallel life for small animals including their own miniature bus-stop, with plenty more details to enjoy again and again and again and again.

If you like to read bedtime stories, contact the Buzz studios and come on down and record!

If you enjoyed listening to this bedtime story, you may enjoy reading it too. Find the book at Inkspell Books in Half Moon Bay.

Thanks for listing to Bedtime Stories on Coastside Buzz.  Listen from any device, FREE, 24/7/365.

This series is produced in the studios.
